What’s a PPA ?
A Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is a way to finance a solar project in which a third-party investor builds, owns and maintains the solar system on your property and then sells you the electricity generated at a reduced rate from your current electric utility bill. The rates offered by Solect are fixed (no escalators) for an extended period – typically 20 to 25 years.
Leasing your physical property (a rooftop, parking lot or land) for a PV system and then purchasing the power generated through a PPA is a great way for entities such as state agencies, municipalities, schools and non-profits to benefit from cleaner, cheaper electricity without having to purchase the system.
CHEAPER, CLEANER POWER WITHOUT THE UPFRONT COST.
